Jeremiah 51:12-14 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
12 Raise a standard against the walls of Babylon;
make the watch strong;
prepare the ambushes;
for the Lord has both planned and done
what he spoke concerning the inhabitants of Babylon.
13 You who live by mighty waters,
rich in treasures,
your end has come,
the thread of your life is cut.
14 The Lord of hosts has sworn by himself:
Surely I will fill you with troops like a swarm of locusts,
and they shall raise a shout of victory over you.
